If you're looking for a Cuban band to hire, Cuba Sol are one of the top Salsa and Latin bands working in the UK today. They are fronted by vocalist Adriana Lord from Havana who has been a leading force on the Havana music scene for well over a decade having worked with the likes of William Vivanco, Eliades Ochoa (Buena Vista Social Club) and N.G. La Banda. Individually the band members have been at the top of the Latin music scenes of Colombia, Spain, Cuba and the U.K. They have been in high demand during the past two years with dates in venues such as Ronnie Scott's, Floridita and Bar Salsa, tours, festivals and private parties with them recently featured on BBC1′s The 1 Show.
